One of the defendants in the Christian-Newsom murder case is filing more paperwork with the state. This time around, the request involves a judge who's under fire.
George Thomas and his attorney say they want to keep Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood on the case. They say the judge is impartial and hasn't done anything wrong.
Blackwood has granted a new trial for George Thomas and other defendants in the case.
Prosecutors have argued Blackwood is too emotionally involved and can no longer fairly preside over the cases. Regardless, Blackwood says he is not stepping down.
